Melbourne City Preview – Can Melbourne City pull away from rivals?

Melbourne City will be looking to make home advantage count at their AAMI Park in Saturday evening’s clash against 3rd placed Perth Glory in this top-of-the-table clash in the A-League with the hosts holding a slender 2-point lead over their rivals for a top two finish.

Following recent back-to-back defeats to local crosstown rivals, Melbourne Victory in a 2-1 loss at home and a 2-1 defeat away from home at runaway league leaders, Sydney FC, Melbourne City have since responded in positive fashion as they head into this upcoming clash with a 3-match unbeaten run.

Home wins against Western United 3-2 and a 2-0 victory over Newcastle Jets have sandwiched a point on the road in a 2-2 draw away from home at Brisbane Roar, so the hosts will be in fairly confident mood that they can get a result here on Saturday evening.

Melbourne City also possess a pretty strong home record which stands at 5-0-2 14/11 but while the two recent defeats are a concern, the goals have continued to flow; indeed, 6 of Melbourne City’s 7 home matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Perth Glory Preview – Can Perth Glory overtake into 2nd spot?

3rd placed visitors, Perth Glory, will make the long trip across Australia to Melbourne having collected an impressive 6 league wins on the trot as the western Australian outfit under manager, Tony Popovic, are building ominous momentum at just the right stage of the season.

This impressive 6-match winning streak includes a 3-0 win away from home at Melbourne City back in early December as well as wins against Adelaide United 3-0 and Newcastle Jets 6-2, while also winning their last 3 away matches on the trot too.

Perth Glory possess a solid looking away record of 4-2-1 11/4 and 3 of Perth Glory’s 7 away matches have resulted in over 2.5 goals and although this isn’t a particularly high rate, the visitors have failed to score just once on their travels so far this season.
